The Stephens County Sheriff’s Office is investigating claims of sexual assault, after a woman was found wandering a rural road early Monday.
A dispatch call came in about 9 a.m. after a man found the victim at Goad Road and 21 Mile in eastern Stephens County. The caller indicated the woman had been badly beaten.
“Someone saw her walking down the road at 9 a.m. this morning, and they called it in,” Stephens County Sheriff Wayne McKinney said. “It’s in our county, just barely, but it’s Stephens County.”
The woman had been missing for more than 16 hours.
